Nick Thiros: The Lawyer for All
Nick Thiros was not only a lawyer's lawyer, but also a lawyer for so many people from all walks of life. He was the best of the best in the courtroom and he was also a mentor to newcomers. His gift was his understanding of people, and he used that ability to appreciate and care for them.
His courtroom skills were legendary. As a young prosecutor in Lake County, Indiana, I would rearrange my schedule to be in the courtroom to watch his closing arguments --as he mesmerized juries with his basic understanding of human nature. Nick T. had the gift of getting the answer he wanted from a witness. He had the rare gift of explaining his client's case for all to understand and appreciate. He found the "human" in each person. And most of all he argued to juries what he believed in and made each juror appreciate justice.
Nick Thiros was there when you needed him. He represented many a lawyer and judge, and often in difficult situations. He was so deserving of becoming a Fellow of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers (ABCL).
It was Nick Thiros who convinced me to join the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and to this day, I am forever grateful. My heart goes out to his family and friends, as he will be missed. Rest in peace, Nick....

Nick was kind even as a young teeanager when I attended Tolleston High School. He had a maturity about him that I respected. My husband thought the world of him even though he attended high school at Froebel in Gary, Indiana.
I last saw him at our school reunion about 10 years ago and he was still the unassuming gentleman with a great sense of humor. Sorry to find out this evening 4/15/13 and I extend my condolences to the family. Nick surely gave us a lot of beautiful memories that we can hold on to.
